Dr. Robert B. Williamson, research associate with the Bureau said industrial production declined, although general business improved, according to early indications. Industrial electric-power use fell 5 per cent, and crude oil production declined 2 per cent, Williamson said, The bureau's index of Texas business activity reached ?00.8 per cent of the 1957-59 average, reflecting increases of 5 per cent j from September and 19 per cent' from a year earlier, Williamson said the downward changes in industrial output, electric power use and oil production "paralleled those for national industrial production, which also showed a seasonally adjusted decline for the second consecutive month during October. Major adverse influences at the national level included strikes in automobile manufacturing and other industries as well as cutbacks in crude oil production," Agriculture has not contributed to Texas business growth for several months, Williamson said and the cumulative value of marketings thus far in 1967 are down 10 per cent from a year ago, while receipts from Texas crops declined by more than 20 per cent. "These losses are considerably sharper than the corresponding declines shown for the nation as a whole," he said. Building permits showed substantial gains in October, although below the peak reached in August. For the first 10 months, the total value of permits was up 16 per cent compared with a year ago, he said. Residential permits rose 21 per cent while nonresidential construction increased 15 per cent, Williamson said.
